Badger Bits: Fifth Quarter Radio Show returns Thursday

So it's been a long time since we did an episode of The 5th Quarter Radio Show, but I'm happy to announce that Jake Harris and I will be back to do TWO very special episodes Thursday night.

For the first time ever, we will do a pre-game AND post-game show right here at Bucky's 5th Quarter. At 7:30 p.m. CT Thursday night we will do a 30-minute pre-game show leading up to the Wisconsin-Indiana game which tips off at 8 p.m. on the Big Ten Network. Immediately following the game, we will do an hour post-game show which will feature your phone calls and immediate reaction from Bloomington, Ind.

Remember, this an online show that you can listen to right here at Bucky's 5th Quarter or over at Blog Talk Radio. It should be a lot of fun and we hope you will join us because it will be a listener driven show and we won't be able to do it without your phone calls!

Interesting discussion topic generated from this Patrick Herb tweet today from the Kohl Center:

BadgerMBBall Coach Ryan to CBS "my all-decade team is: PG Jameer Nelson, SG Steph Curry, SF Alando Tucker, PF Carmelo Anthony, C Tyler Hansbrough"

Obviously the inclusion of Tucker is a little biased, but I'm not ready to completely dismiss it because the small forward position probably has the least amount of candidates. I'm going to need more time to think about my NCAA all-decade team and I know there are better small fowards than Tucker.

It's kind of interesting that Ryan went with Nelson over Devin Harris (which would have been another biased selection), but he's not completely off the hook for going with Nelson because the former St. Joseph's point guard is from Ryan's hometown of Chester, Penn. Nelson is well-deserving of the selection. Remember how good that St. Joseph's team was with Nelson and Delonte West?

A big day in Ann Arbor for the Michigan football team as the university addressed the NCAA's Notice of Allegations that was delivered to them yesterday. Basically the allegations are somewhere in the middle of secondary-to-severe violations. You can read the notice here.

Finally, the Wisconsin Athletic Department released its very own iPhone application today, which you can download on iTunes. Thumbs up for a cool application, but thumbs down for it costing $4.99 a year. Maybe a one-time purchase would be understandable, but paying $4.99 a year to get the same information you can get at UWBadgers.com? No thank you.
